220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0330 Leases. The apparent legislative purpose of defining who is considered to be the owner of an interest in real property subject to a lease is to eliminate the need to value leasehold interests and reversionary interests separately. By considering the lessor or lessee to be the owner of the entire property at any given time, namely, less than 35 years vis-à-vis 35 years or more, a transfer by the lessor, when the owner, or by the lessee, when the owner, will result in a change in ownership of the entire property.
